Mixed-vegetable-paratha
      I always wanted to try this mixed vegetable paratha,and when I saw my sis in law’s post - How to make square parathas, I was way too tempted. So I tried to make square parathas with stuffing to suit my kids taste,with  spices and his favourite veggies. He loved it a lot and here after he wants ‘only’ square parathas!

Ingredients: (for no onion no garlic version,just omit them and follow the same recipe)

Potato,small sized 2
Frozen/fresh peas 1/4 cup
Carrot and beans, finely chopped 1/4 cup
Onion 1,Finely chopped
Tomato 1,de-seeded & finely chopped
Corainder leaves,chopped 2 tblsp
Ginger garlic paste 3/4 tsp
Fennel or cumin seeds 1 tsp
Oil 2-3 tsp
Salt As needed
Turmeric powder 1/8 tsp
Garam masala powder 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder 1/2 - 3/4 tsp
For Dough:
Wheat flour/Atta 1 cup , heaped
Oil 1 – 2 tblsp
Salt As needed(3/4 tsp)
Warm water As needed

mix-veg-paratha-recipe

Method:

  1. Pressure cook potatoes cut in to 8 and peas with little water and carrot,beans with a tsp of water sprinkled,separately kept in another vessel.(for 3-4 whistles)After done,drain the water immediately in the potato and peel the potato skin and mash it along with peas.Also drain water from carrot,beans, if any left in the vessel.
  2.   mix1
  3. Make a soft n pliable dough,as we do for roti and keep covered.Use warm water to get soft dough. mix2
  4. Heat a pan with oil and temper with fennel/cumin seeds and add onion and fry till soft. Add Ginger garlic paste and fry for a minute in low flame.Add tomato and fry for a minute,followed by carrot beans,Fry for a minute.Add turmeric,garam masala,red chilli powder,salt and coriander leaves and give it a quick stir in medium flame.mix3
  5. Add the mashed potato and peas and mix well until everything blends and fry in low flame for 2-3  minutes.
  6. mix4
  7. Cool down and make 6 equal sized balls. Make six equal sized balls from the dough as well.
    mix5
  8. First roll a ball of dough as we do for roti and keep the stuffing in the centre.Fold from the left first and then from right as shown in the below picture.
  9. mix6
  10. Then fold from above and then below to for a square packet.Dust the pack generously with maida and roll into square paratha. While rolling the paratha will tend to turn round shaped,but try to maintain the shape by rolling only in the corners in between to retain the shape.(This is what I call squareDont tell anyone)Heat tawa and drizzle oil and toast both sides in medium flame till golden spots appear.
  11. mix7

Serve with curd/dahi or any other raita of your choice.Yummy and flavourful!!

       Glad to send this to Fast Food NOT Fat Food 2011 (March 1 - April 15)

Notes:
  • Use your choice of vegetable,make sure to drain well the water in the cooked vegetables.
  • You can omit tomato and add lemon juice at the end too.
  • Roll and toast side by side, If you roll and keep,then it will turn sticky.
  • Perfect for lunch box,just wrap then in aluminium foil!

    ReplyDelete
  64. veg pratha looks divine...healthy and so colourfu.kids will just love it...much much better than the frozen ones that we buy outside.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hi Harini,
    If the stuffing gets outside when rolling,that means your stuffing is too soft(loose) and the dough is too tight(thick) ... the dough also has to be very soft and pliable. Try adding little more water to the dough and see ...

    ReplyDelete

  71. hi! i tried this recipe it came out well...but i dint add tomatoes i added amchur powder instead coz tomatoes make the chapathies soft. nice recipe keep the good work going...good luck!:)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hi Raks,
    I got mesmerized with the orangy pictures of the paratha and tried the recipe last night. It got flopped :(. But then I got where I went wrong. I did not de-seed the tomato. So my masala stuffing went mushy and was not able to roll the paratha. They came out of the paratha while i rolled them. But never mind, i then got a lesson that one should read/listen thoroughly before trying recipes :D . Will sure try it until it gets perfect :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. cool !! Yes like the way you did unfold the recipe and its good , usually I like to chop my coriander leaves and also add finely chopped gr chillies !! and mix em into the veg mix at the end and not in fire !! thats because i love the coriander flavor to come out more ... amazing with the carrots n bean n peas next time my parathas will experiment this

    ReplyDelete
  74. It's an awesome recipe! I just tried it!
